Nigeria and Ivory Coast have already qualified for World Cup 2014 this weekend. Next we’ll see if either Cameroon or Tunisia qualify for Brazil.
Cameroon got a solid 0-0 draw in Tunisia in the first leg, and will fancy their chances to qualify at home. Inspirational striker Samuel Eto’o is back on form, and back in the good graces of the Cameroon Football Federation after quitting the team and being reinstated all in the last few months.

Cameroon have traditionally been at World Cups since the days of Roger Milla in 1990, while Tunisia are looking to go for only the second time. Things could get hairy for Cameroon if Tunisia score, since they would lose on an away goals tiebreaker if the game ended in a tie.
Cameroon: Charles Itandje – Stephane Mbia, Benoit Assou Ekotto, Nicolas Nkoulou – Aurelien Chedjou, Alex Song, Jean Makoun, Eyong Enoh – Benjamin Moukandjo, Samuel Eto’o, Achille Webo.
